ANN: Tiny Loupe 1.0 (well, sorta)

I'll consider both options to make it available, and might do one and then the other.

At this point I don't want to take sides as to whether the pixel coordinate whole numbers are in the middle of pixels or between pixels.  The latter is great for rectangles (used everywhere in LiveCode) and LiveCode graphics leans to the former.  Borders are a mix.

The hotspot + is in the middle of a pixel, which is what most people expect.  

Yours might be an example of how it can be modified.
